In this episode I will take you behind the scenes from one of my closed door events where we talk about the power of bridging the gap from where you want to be to where you want to go with key relationships and properly aligned relationships.

One of the things I like to challenge people to do is, at the end of the year is intentionally seek out the models, the mentors, and the people that you’d like to acquire specific skill sets from or get certain wisdom from on the front side. You’ll here in this episode how specifically me having some wrong relationships cost me a ton of money. I really want you to hear my discussion on this topic because it’s made one of the most significant differences in my life with being okay going from where you are now today to where you’re going to be in the next year at an accelerated rate. So that’s it let me know what you think and I look forward to talking to you on the next episode. So enjoy this episode and please share it!

Tony Grebmeier has been a friend of mine for a little over a year and we met through this health supplement business. Tony runs a company called “Ship Offers”. Ship Offers is a private labelling company and formulation company for health supplements but that’s not what we talked about in this episode.

Tony’s stories are absolutely fascinating! He went from making millions to drug addiction to getting sober, while insuring his family units stayed together. And now he’s been sober for many years. So in this episode we talk about the disease of addiction and overcoming it, but also the phase in his life that actually led him to it.

You will see in this episode, we did something different! We did a power talk where we interviewed each other so we could both use the information for our podcasts. So throughout this episode we go back and forth asking each other questions. You will hear some behind the scenes that I shared about Kokoro camp, my prep work, my mindset, and my goals while being there!

 “Making Fridays Count” podcast!  This podcast is about why I believe the concept around making Fridays count has never been more important and why or what you should be focusing on Fridays. If you’re anything like me, the week flies by and you’re sitting there trying to get as much done on Fridays as you possibly can.

You are trying to tie up as many loose ends as you can. The challenge with that is, is that by doing those reactive skill sets it actually sets me up improperly for my weekend and next week.

Our society has become ever increasingly open and that means that people have access to you that shouldn’t, people have opinions they share on Facebook, Twitter that they shouldn’t. And the amount of ability to focus has dramatically shifted and gone down. In this podcast I explain what I mean by that in this podcast! Make it an awesome Friday!

This interview I have is with a very special guest and good friend Lewis Howes! You probably heard of him; he is currently a New York Times bestseller for his book called “The School of Greatness”.

In this interview Lewis shares an amazing story of how he went from a high-level athlete to a career ending injury which made him go on the path of entrepreneurship. Nowadays Lewis teaches phenomenal courses at Lewishowes.com where he holds webinars on how to hold webinars for your business, and how to build the life that you want.

This interview is great because we got a chance to talk about a lot of things like how Lewis learned, how he assimilates information rapidly, how he finds mentors, and how he takes action. Lewis shares a surprising story about which story out of his entire book, is the the most impactful. The story is profound about overcoming obstacles and dealing with adversity.

So I know you’ll love this interview; please let me know what you think of it. And share with those who could benefit from it!

My interview with Jesse Itzler is absolutely awesome! This guy is a trip, he’s hysterical, he’s a business badass and he’s a warrior athlete. He was crazy enough to hire a navy seal and not just any navy seal, a complete and utter bad dude who you’ll learn more about in this interview we have together. If you haven’t read the book, “Living with a seal” you are going to be inspired to do that.

A little bit of a background on Jesse; he was a rapper in his early 20s. He’s well known for his popular New York Knicks anthem called “Go New York go New York go!” which I asked him about in the interview.  He co-founded Marquis Jet, the world’s largest prepaid private jet card company in 2001 which he and his partner sold to Berkshire Hathaway. He then helped pioneer the coconut water craze with ZICO coconut water which he and his partner sold to the Coca Cola company in 2013. Nowadays you can find Jesse at NBA’s Atlanta Hawks games where he is the owner, and you will hear more about in our interview.  Jesse married the founder of the company called Spanx which all women know about, Sara Blakely. You’re going to be in for a treat while listening to this interview. I was in heaven interviewing this guy! Enjoy!

In this quick little video I will share how to create a fail proof online health product business. I'm really excited to share this with you because this is probably one of the unique factors that you're not going to get at any typical seminar or really in any course! My goal is to show you behind a curtain of what it actually takes to run a successful health product business online. And the same principles I'm about to show you right now actually apply to offline businesses as well. So it all kind of starts with this simple question...
